I need help. Genius girlfriend spilled 3 cups of 7-11 coffee on her legs/my passenger seat/passenger floor. How do I get this out? I'm super super pissed, as this trashed my ipod, a few chargers, etc. Thanks.
I'd try one of those Prestone Interior cleaners or whatever.
Or my local grocery store has these little yellow bottles in the cleaner aisle, they say things like Rust or Blood or stuff like that on them, they're stain removers. Can't remember who makes them, could be worth a try, I think they make Coffee.
I think any good carpet stain/spot remover would work fine, whether it's for home or auto. Coffee isn't as tough to get out as say some oil-based stains would be. Good luck, let us know how it comes out.
DO NOT get rubber ugly ass mats. imho they ruin the car. woolite heavy traffic has worked for me, and it a very easy application. I would also suggest just getting new mats, coffee is a bitch. and yea hot water extractor.
Sorry, but up in Michigan (and with kids in the back seat) those mats are a necessity. If I didn't have heavy duty rubber mats my carpeting would be SOAKED with water, salt, and road grime in the winter. No matter how well you try to clean off your boots, a lot of snow comes with you. I'd much rather have ugly rubber mats and pristine carpeting underneath.
Besides, mine match my car and I don't think they're ugly.
I took a 3 year old coffee stain out of a blue seat in a toyota pick up with 1Lifter carpet stain remover. That stuff is freakin awesome, I have removed hair dye, grease/oil and a whole lot of other stuff with it. You can pick it up at O'Reilleys for about 3 or 4 bucks a can. Light blue colored can.
